Make Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop

Location: City College
Are you ready for the rain? If you’ve been looking for a cost effective way of saving rainwater, we are offering a solution. Come and make your own rain barrel to take home!
We will provide clean, recycled, food grade 55 gallon plastic drums along with a kit of parts to tap it for a hose fitting on the bottom and an overflow on the top, as well as mosquito-proofing options. You will be able to drill your holes and assemble your barrel onsite.
The class will begin with an educational seminar covering various facets of water harvesting from understanding what your rainwater potential is, how to use your rainwater, how to accommodate runoff in your landscape, as well as greywater use and regulations.
The cost of the class is $75, If you would like to participate in the workshop but do not want to take home your own barrel, the cost is $25, sliding scale. If you would like to purchase an extra barrel and parts, the cost will be $50. Cash or check will be accepted. Don't forget that you can apply for you barrel rebate of $27! $5 of your fee will go to Seeds, the Urban Farm at City College to further the programs they offer.
This will be a great opportunity to connect with community members and learn more about using our water resources.
